February 25



1787:

1st Battalion, The Royal New Brunswick Regiment (Carleton and York), specific date of origin not known


1838:

Amherstburg Ontario - Canadian militia routs American republican sympathizers on Fighting Island, in the Detroit River


1867:

A.G.L. 'Andy' McNaughton 1867-1966


1870:

2nd Battalion, The Royal New Brunswick Regiment (North Shore): Spem Reduxit (Hope restored)


1917:

During fighting along the banks of the Tigris in Mesopotamia, troops from the South Lancashire Regiment (British Army) repeatedly attempted to advance along a gully, but suffered heavy casualties each time from a Turkish machine-gun.  Private Readitt took part in each of five attacks, and on each occasion was the only survivor.  However, the attacks slowly forced the Turks to give ground.  When the officer commanding the operation was killed, Readitt when forward once more, alone and on his own initiative.  He advanced right up to the Turkish position, and although he was unable to remain there for long, he inflicted damage with grenades.  He slowly retired, and located a good defensive position a short distance away, which he proceeded to hold on his own.  Eventually, other soldiers managed to advance and join him, and consolidate the position.  Readitt was awarded the Victoria Cross.


1941:

British troops occupied the capital Mogadishu, as Italian resistance in Somaliland collapsed.


1944:

Bomber Command mounted a devastating attack on Augsburg, the first occasion it had attacked that city in strength. Good weather and poor anti-aircraft defence contributed to a very concentrated attack by 594 aircraft carrying more than 2,000 tons of bombs. The raid proved somewhat controversial, given the level of destruction in the old city centre. Some 700 Germans were killed, but perhaps 90,000 rendered homeless. An important aircraft component factory was successfully damaged, as well as factories associated with the MAN engineering works, which produced U-boat engines.


1945:

Following fierce fighting in Holland, a platoon of The Queen's Own Rifles of Canada had been reduced to just one sergeant and four men during a series of German night counter-attacks. Sergeant Cosens positioned the four riflemen to give him covering fire, then ran to a supporting tank. Standing fully exposed on the tank, he directed its fire to good effect, breaking up another attack. He than asked the tank to bulldoze a way into a German-occupied farm. Cosens went into the farm alone and killed or captured all its defenders. He then succeeded in clearing another two buildings on his own, and was killed by a sniper.


1991:

During the Persian Gulf War, an Iraqi Scud missile hit a U.S. barracks in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia, killing 28 Americans.
